    Abstract

    This paper studies the impact of factors in affecting the price behavior of the local stock market during earnings announcements. In addition, the market efficiency during post-earnings announcements is also studied. Appropriate adjustments to mitigate possible effects of thin trading bias are carried out using Dimson method. The factors investigated included type of news, firm size, level of institutional ownership, and level of foreign ownership.
